Blog: Investigative reporting and Kyrgyzstan’s selective justice

21 Jun

At a Bishkek roundtable Tuesday called “The Fourth
Estate: Rule of the Game,” Almambet Shykmamatov, Kyrgyzstan’s justice minister,
encouraged local reporters to expose government corruption, local press reported. The
minister said authorities would follow up on such reports, grant security to
investigative journalists, and might even pay them up to 20 percent of the
funds that corrupt officials return to state coffers.
